Banerjee, who is also the (TMC) supremo, has called a mega rally of opposition parties in Kolkata on January 19 next year as part of efforts to stop the BJP from coming back to power in the 2019 election.

Slamming the saffron party's Hindutva agenda, she said, "I have great respect for the seers of the But I do not respect those in the BJP, who only do drama in the name of Hindutva."

In an apparent reference to Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath's recent statement in poll-bound that Hanuman was a Dalit, Banerjee alleged that the BJP was insulting the Dalits. She, however, did not take any name.

The accused the BJP of converting institutions like the (CBI) and the (RBI) into its party offices. "This has never happened before," she said.
